This is an easy achievement to get. First, you don't need to focus on winning the game. You only need to end up with the longest track. Second, if your opponent is focused on winning, they'll likely fork their track which will make it easier for you to get the longest route. If you're playing in North America, I think the best route is along the Northern, Western, and Southern edges. Those are tough because the west coast usually requires lots of pink, and the northern coast requires white. The reason those routes are good is that they have a lot of long tracks. In order to get the longest route, you need to use most of your trains before the game finishes. If you focus on short segments, it'll take you more turns to use your 45 trains, and you might not finish before someone else does. Keep playing your train segments around board, and don't fork your track. You can have a loop at the end of your track, but I recommend a single line. Repeat this for 5 games, and you'll get the achievement.
